An employee at a San Antonio-area Whataburger called attention to a serious issue facing the franchise: table tent theft.
“Stop stealing our numbers,” tweeted @SarahSlush on Wednesday. “This is what we’ve come to.”
The tweet featured a photo showing upturned fry boxes with numbers scribbled on them, which the store was using as “emergency” table tents.
Though she later called her post a joke, and has since deleted it, that hasn’t stopped Whatburger fans from sending her photos of what they’ve done with their stolen Whataburger numbers:
Based on people’s reaction to the post, it’s no surprise Whatburger keeps coming up short on table tents.
While people have certainly gotten creative, one Whata-numbers “thief” has taken their collection to the next level:
Try as they might, fans of the mighty Texas burger chain can never top the efforts of the Houston Police Department.
Putting a little extra Texas in their crime scenes, HPD officers used the popular table tents as crime scene markers until August 2017, when the department banned them.
